Mrs. Kelly Vaziri

I have been teaching seventeen wonderful years.  This will be my seventh year teaching ESL here at Thompson Middle School, and I taught third grade at Meadow View for ten years.  I have been married to my husband, Saeid, for thirty-five years and we live in the Oak Mountain area. We have three sons: Jonathan is an Art Director and is married to Hiba (Awwad) and they just had our first granddaughter, Norah.  Kayhan is a touring musician and helps run our family business, and Stefan is an app developer and lives in Washington, D.C.    

I graduated from the University of Montevallo with a B.S. degree in Elementary Education and from UAB with a Master’s degree in English as a Second Language.  In addition, I am certified to teach secondary English Language Arts (6-12), Health (6-12) and a certified Education Administrator. 

In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, spending time with my family, being involved with my church, and watching the news.

I am very excited about this new year.  I have prepared many engaging experiences for my students. I look forward to getting to know all of you. I know that by working together we will have a successful year.
